Rent Consultation 2023-24

East Lothian Council consults with tenants, tenants and residents’ groups, and East Lothian Tenants and Residents Panel (ELTRP) on any proposals to increase rent.  The Council is aware that for many tenants this year is possibly even more difficult with high inflation and a cost of living that is placing huge stresses on household finances.   However, without a rent increase in April 2023, it will be impossible for the Council to continue to deliver the present level of service including its planned modernisation and new build programme.  Taking this into consideration, this is your time to have your say on the proposed rent increase and what this means for you as a tenant.  A letter and questionnaire has been sent out to council tenants. 


Have your say!

Please spare a few minutes to feedback by completing and returning the questionnaire which has been sent to you, or complete the questionnaire online at Rent Consultation Survey 23/24 - East Lothian Council - Citizen Space ( 

The survey ends on Friday 16th December 2022.
